DescriptionI decided to take the MkII and MkIII out to do a comparison on ISO, since I have been trusting the MkIII at 6400 ISO, but never trusted the MkII over 1600. It looks like the test is not valid, as the exposures are all over the place between the two cameras, partly as clouds moved around, but also just because they differ. I think a rigorous comparison needs fixed lighting conditions. It is also clear from the images I shot with a 10 stop ND filter that there is a lot more noise at lower light levels, which is going to make a rigorous test harder as it will need light levels appropriate to the target ISO. Maybe use the LED panel at night indoors, to manage light. I also need to define a processing protocol as Affinity batch processing did a lot of denoise processing, making the images quite acceptable before running them into Topaz. From what I have seen so far though I suspect the noise is similar on both, which is not quite what I expected from prior experience. In the meantime, here is a nice low ISO HD shot just to see how that came through with noise. Or not.
